Repost From ⭐️ @worthingmuseum From their Collections: Blackwork jacket/waistcoat, c. 1610-1620

This is the oldest item in our extensive costume collection, dating to over 400 years ago! Blackwork is a form of embroidery using black thread, though occasionally other colours were used. It became popular in the 16th century and was actually going out of fashion by the time this particular piece was made.

In the portrait of Simon George by Hans Holbein the Younger (1535) you can see blackwork on Simon's collar. Similarly in the portrait of Queen Elizabeth I (artist unknown, c. 1590) you can see free-stitched blackwork sleeves, stomacher and collar.

Our beautiful blackwork jacket is a very rare survival of the fashion - few pieces are preserved in good condition due to the iron in the dye being corrosive.

Here at Worthing Museum & Art Gallery we have one of the largest costume collections in the country with over 30,000 items #museumsfromhome #costume #vintagedress #blackwork #fashion #fasionthroughtheages #dresshistory #hansholbein #embroidery #history #jacket #historylovers #fashionlover #elizabeth1 #costumecollection #textileconservation #textiles #1600s #historygram #flashesofdelight

Have you been enjoying Alfred Hitchcock’s movies on tv? To catch a thief today- with the wonderfully glamorous wardrobe for Grace Kelly, made by Hitch’s long-time costume collaborator Edith Head. Although the costumes were designed and made in Hollywood, Head was invited to the set in France, something that rarely happened to costume designers. Here we have the memorable powder blue gown 💙💙💙 #gracekelly #tocatchathief #hitchcock #hollywood #1950s #fashionicon #moviefashion #silverscreen #hollywoodfashion #fashion #filmfashion #moviestar #fashionthroughthelens #dresshistory #edithhead #designers #carygrant #powderblue #frenchriviera #moviemagic ...

Remembering Pierre Cardin
here his “bubble dress”, a design whose fitted bodice and full, gathered skirt became one of the predominant cocktail dress silhouettes of the decade.

Woven into the fibres of this waistcoat is a story that provides an insight into a crucial time in Britain’s history. It was made for J.D. Carr, founder of the Carlisle firm, Carr’s biscuits, around 1840. The waistcoat represents Carr’s political views through its design symbolism. Carr campaigned for free trade and the repeal of the Corn Laws. To reflect this it is printed with an intricate design featuring ears of wheat and tiny slogans saying 'free'.
